corrosion in Rear License Plate Lighting (01 Wagon)

Can anyone confirm if this is actually a dealer fix (Canada). Seems to
be a seruioious design flaw. I replaced the plastic assembly (one stud
had rusted off the original) and the replacement assembly had neoprene
gaskets... An indepedant service shop replaced it and wired up new
lights and obviously used higher amperage lights than required, and
they melted the lenses in the lights...

Has anyone experienced corrosion of the rear license tag lights in
their ford focus SE wagon(2001)?


If so, is their any knowledge out there as to Technical Service
Bulletins concerning this problem?


Thanks for you help.

It is a well known problem. Water gets into the lights place and you
get
corrosion. They should fix it up for free in your car dealer.
